Get Ready for Tally Top Pet 2022!
We are getting ready to launch the search for 2022’s Tally Top Pet, and we couldn’t be more excited. Last year, the Tally Top Pet campaign raised $12,250 towards Be The Solution for spay and neuter programs for the immediate and surrounding communities, and we are looking to up the ante for 2022!
The program begins with the GoGo Photo Contest. Pet owners can submit their furry or feathery companions for $10 per entry from Sept. 1–Sept. 20, 2021. It’s an additional $1 to vote. The pets that end up in the top 16 leaderboard will be invited to an exclusive photoshoot at North Florida Animal Hospital. Ready for your close-up?
After the photoshoot, the top 16 pets will face-off in a “March Madness”-style bracket voting contest beginning Dec. 16. A champion will be crowned in March of 2022, and the winning pet will grace the cover of the May/June 2022 issue of Tallahassee Magazine. All proceeds raised during the campaign’s entirety will benefit Be The Solution.
Some Things to Note
This Contest is for All Pets!
Don’t get us wrong, we love our wonderful dogs and cats. However, we want to let everyone know that Tally Top Pet is a contest meant to celebrate all pets, no matter the species, size, or breed. We welcome everyone to submit their pets for the contest. Whether you’re the parent of an African grey parrot, a beautiful black horse, a feisty ferret or a slick iguana, we welcome all pets to take part in this annual celebration.
Make Sure Your Pets are Ready for Lights, Camera, Action!
Remember, the top 16 pets will be required to participate in an exclusive photoshoot at North Florida Animal Hospital. Therefore, before you submit your pet for the contest, you must ensure that if your pet were to make it to bracket voting, they would be able to cooperate in a public setting for the purposes of producing great photos. The photoshoot will be in a designated indoor area with constant foot traffic and the presence of many people.
We will see you right here for the GoGo Photo contest beginning Sept. 1. Happy submitting, and may the best pet win!
